Walking boots

I had been looking for a sturdy wide pair of boots which were waterproof and had a good grip. I didn’t want to pay massive amount and came across these boots. They are extremely comfy, supportive, have a good grip and are waterproof. They also look good! They are an excellent price. They came very quickly. Would highly recommend.

Wide and Waterproof!

I have always found it a struggle to find walking shoes that fit comfortably (wide feet, short toes!). I've probably spent more on plasters that shoes! But these have been extremely comfortable. So far I've tried them on relatively short distances (up to 6 miles) and in moderately wet weather and they've held up well. I would agree that they are a little high and were initially uncomfortable at the top of the ankle, but I played around with the tightness of the laces and have absolutely no problems now. They are true to size but if you like to wear big socks in your walking boots I'd recommending going up a size. Happy Hiking!

robust, wasserdicht, bequem

Der Schuh ist sehr stabil. Habe ihn bei Schnee getragen und da war er wasserdicht. Bei starken Regen noch nicht probiert. Einziges kleines Mango: er ist etwas schwer.

guter Wanderschuh

schicker, stabiler Wanderschuh, wasserdicht,

Son moi cómodas e impermeables

Son moi cómodas, non teñen costuras que fagan rozaduras, nin son ríxidas en movemento e teñen bastante amplitude para que o pé asente ben. Son moi quentes, aínda cando se mollan e en repouso. O piso agarra ben excepto en pedra mollada, en zonas onde hai verdín ou calquera outra sustancia esbaradiza.

Geniales

Ha superado mis espectativas, son de muy buena calidad.

Additional Product Information

Composition

Outer sole of

  • 40% Polyurethane
  • 60% Rubber - Synthetic

Upper of

  • 40% Polyester cationic
  • 60% Split bovine leather

Lining and sock of

  • 100% Polyester cationic

Sole with grip

The grip of our soles is certified. To be awarded certification, the boots must pass laboratory tests to assess the grip rate on different surfaces (Smooth, Rugged, Dry, Wet). To validate these tests, we assess the quality of our soles in the field, in the mountains, by a panel of representative testers over 310 miles

Why offer the same model with 2 widths at the front of the foot?

Following an extensive study of hiker's preferences when it comes to boot shape, we decided to design a boot available in 2 different shapes: 1 "classic" and 1 "wide". Each individual can choose how much space they have inside the boots and reduce the risk of inflammation and blisters caused by badly fitting boots.

How waterproof are these boots?

This boot has been validated by a waterproofing test at 30,000 repeatable flexes, i.e. 9 miles - 6 hours of walking, in water up to the mid-upper, which today guarantees a very good level of waterproofing for your boots. --> Our assessment indicates a LEVEL OF 3/5 giving 6 hours of waterproofing when hiking in the rain. The details of tests carried out to assess the waterproofing of our boots is below, in the features section.

Making waterproofing last longer

A shoe's waterproofing is often undermined by water getting in from the top of the shoe. To keep your feet dry for longer, it is therefore advisable to use a waterproof gaiter or mini-gaiter that will prevent not only water from getting inside through the top, but also pebbles, sand, etc. It is advisable to use a waterproof spray several times a year. This restores the original water-repellent properties and prevents staining.

Care advice

1 / Use a brush and/or sponge to clean the boot and remove any dirt or mud. 2/ Then leave to air-dry, away from any heat source. 3/ Finish by using a re-waterproofing spray to keep optimal water-repellency of the upper and extend the life of the boot. Link below for the applicator, also available online https://www.decathlon.fr/p/applicateur-re-activateur-de-deperlance-pour-chaussures/_/R-p-307629?mc=8551

Which size should i select?

Which size should I select? For hiking, do not hesitate to buy 1 size larger than the usual size to guarantee excellent comfort on the descent and to avoid toes rubbing at the tip of the shoe. Tip: keep your toenails short and, before making your descent, check that your lacing prevents your foot from sliding toward the front of the boot.

5 levels of waterproofing

During the waterproofing test, we test 5 levels of waterproofing: 2,000 flexes (approximately 2.5 miles, 30 minutes of walking) 10,000 flexes (approximately 6 miles, 3 hours of walking) 30,000 flexes (approximately 9 miles, 6 hours of walking) 50,000 flexes (approximately 12.5 miles, 8 hours of walking) 100,000 flexes (approximately >12.5 miles, 24 hours of walking)

Waterproofing test

Our shoes are laboratory tested according to 2 successive tests Test 1 / We test the efficiency of the membrane only when it is pressured and placed in water, we check the absence of water at the surface, like when you test a "punctured inner tube. Test 2 / The assembled shoes are placed on mechanical arms that simulate walking and are half immersed in water. They complete thousands of flexes to check that the inside of the shoe remains dry and it is therefore waterproof.

Buying tips / how do you try your boots on?

How to choose your boots: 1. Try on both shoes standing up and wearing the socks worn for hiking. 2. Tighten the laces correctly 3. Check the following 2 areas of comfort: the base of the heel and the front part of the foot going down. 4. Get up to walk with the boots on. 5. Try on several sizes and several models. 6. Wear your boots for increasingly long periods to wear them in
